Sport 4 Life UK

Sport 4 Life UK is an award-winning charity that exists to support disadvantaged young people aged 12-25 to make a positive change in their lives and to unlock their true potential.

Founded 2006

  • Mission statement

    In the city of Birmingham, an estimated 50,000 young people live in the top 5% most deprived areas nationally. Sport 4 Life is the award-winning charity that changes the lives of these disadvantaged young people through the power of sport. We work with 12-16 year olds who have struggled at school, endured difficult home lives, or developed behavioural issues, and with 16-25 year olds who have experienced long-term unemployment or been involved in the criminal justice system. Yet despite these challenging backgrounds, Sport 4 Life believes every young person has the ability to make a positive change in their lives and to be a success story. We provide a helping hand on this journey through our sports-themed educational programmes. These programmes support young people to achieve something tangible - to transform their behaviour, improve their self-esteem, gain an accredited qualification, or find a job - and ultimately to reach their true potential for the future.
